Hi dock..

There is a verion of LaTeX for windows called MiKTeX that you can get here: http://www.miktex.org/

LaTeX <http://www.latex-project.org/>(from my experience) is primarily for use on UNIX/Linux boxes. That appears to be the native environment for it. I run linux and have never used LaTeX on windows or a mac so I'm not sure. There is a front-end for it called LyX on linux if you happen to be using that which would make the formatting a lot easier. Good luck!

p.s. There is also a mac version here: http://www.esm.psu.edu/mac-tex/
